Manchester City Told To Sign Cristiano Ronaldo, 'Will Score 25 Goals Under Pep Guardiola'

Manchester City have been told to sign Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo as a replacement for Sergio Aguero.

Aguero has missed City's last four games with a hamstring problem and it means he's only played three times this season.

Reports emerged on Monday claiming Juventus are open to selling Ronaldo due to his massive wages, with talkSPORT's Andy Townsend thinking Pep Guardiola should be interested.

He explained: "If you want goals then I think he's still the ultimate goal machine.

"I know [Lionel] Messi and there has been so much mileage on the debate over the years but I still think Ronaldo still has the desire and want to be remembered as the greatest. He will in some people's eyes but he won't in others.

"He's still got a desire to score goals. More than anything on the field now, he just wants to score goals.

"He's at that period where his eyes light up every time there's a free-kick at whatever angle. Whenever he gets the chance to shoot he will. Even when others are better placed, forget that.

"He's unbelievable in the air, which we've seen in a Juventus shirt already.

"If he became available and Juve wanted out on him and Man City needed goals for their team then I don't think you should hesitate in going to get Cristiano Ronaldo.

"He's 35 and I still think he's got 18 months in him. If he came to Man City and the way they play I think he could go there and get 25 in his first season."

Ronaldo has scored 27 goals in Serie A in 2020 making him the top scorer in Europe's top five leagues, with an average of a goal every 73 minutes.

Sunday saw him net in Juventus' 1-1 draw with Lazio, but he hobbled off with an injury in the second half.

While he'd probably score a boatload of goals at the Etihad, his allegiances to City's bitter rivals Manchester United would make a move difficult.

'CR7' joined United as an 18-year-old and developed into one of the world's best players under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Three Premier League titles, a Champions League as well as being named 2008 Ballon d'Or winner saw him seal a then-record £80 million transfer to Real Madrid in 2009.

Would he turn out for United's 'noisy neighbours?'
